Check out Fire Tiger's Energy album of original songs with a great 80's vibe

Fire Tiger
I found Fire Tiger through a Twitter suggestion and shortly afterward was ordering their CD online.
If you're looking for a modern band with an 80's vibe, check out Fire Tiger! Their sound really takes me back to the pop/rock days of the 80s. While the 80s rocked a lot of different musical styles, these guys really capture am an awesome sound of that era.

Fire Tiger Fire Tiger Energy album There may never be a decade more amazing than the 80s. From insane video game arcades to the music that ruled the day, there was never a dull moment! From Van Halen and Blondie to Survivor and The Eurythmics there was a great diversity in styles, but they had a connection within that crazy decade.

Fire Tiger definitely takes me back to a genre I loved in those days - and stil do.

Many of the bands I loved back then have recently released new albums. In the past year, I've picked up new CDs from Def Leppard, Cheap Trick, and The Pretenders. That's pretty cool.

At the same time, it's fun to find a band like Fire Tiger that's a modern band with original songs, yet embodies a lot of the style of my favorite 80s bands. Check out their sound and see if it doesn't bring you back. You can download their music on iTunes. I wanted the full retro effect of the complete CD package, so I ordered it on Amazon. That purchase gave me instant access to the MP3 files. So, I got to check them out a few days before the actual CD arrived.

I often doubt the value of social media and think my time would be better spent reading a book. As much as I need to catch up with the stack of books I've been meaning to read, if it weren't for Twitter, I might not have heard about Fire Tiger. Amidst all the junk online thee days, there are still some gems. Give this band a listen!
